I too will be tailgating in SouthEnd with some friends. Probably in the lot across Tryon from the Gin Mill. Unless you have a better spot....that's been our go-to in the past.

That's where I tailgated this week!

The wife and I went a little too hard at Jeff's Bucket Shop Friday night and I had to flake out of Bulldog like a chump.  Apologies to all involved.  A man can only handle so many Shania Twain covers.

A bit last minute, but does anyone want to grab a beer tonight?

Sorry I missed this... I was working my way through some of the new options on tap at The Rhino Market Uptown.

I was just in that area last month. This is several miles beyond the end of the paved road and every one of the homes there seems unsupportable as one must approach by driving the beach or by boat from the sound side then 4 wheel it to a house. (All wheel drive is not the same, nor is it as good as 4 wheel drive with transfer case). Part of the beach drive is a no stopping zone. At high tide one is in the soft dune sand rather than packed sand and even four wheel low range is a struggle. I was a passenger in a military HumVee converted for civilian use. Night driving on the beach is not recommended as all the dunes look the same plus there are stumps from a former maritime forest still waiting to tear out your oil pan. There is a community of a few hundred  in an area named Carova with residents for a few decades, but the rest are mostly people who want extreme homes: extreme remoteness, extreme distance, extreme experience. I wish this woman and her lawyer only the worst luck. The Twiddy family controls many of the Northern Outer Banks rental properties. Another home in this strip has a helipad.

Put me in as a maybe as well.  If I'm in town that weekend I'll definitely meet up for a drink or two.

Sorry, my "like" was a lazy way of saying "I'm down."

Well what is the best place in the city for us to look out on the splendor of uptown and discuss? The roof of Graham Street Pub? Unknown Brewing seems like a good candidate as well.

^^^ do they have burgers on the menu??

LOL. Good question, it looks like they do. Personally I have a preference toward SouthEnd always, but am definitely anxious to try Graham St.

Your buddy will get married bunches of times. RDF only comes to town like... a couple times a year.

I am in also... that Graham St rooftop and patio show off the skyline like no other spot around (Fahrenheit perhaps),  but I bet it will be a madhouse for a tailgate.
